Don't put this in blender it turns into paste better to chop. I will try this again!

Freaky how much this tastes like couscous!. My cooking time was a lot less, so watch this as you are browning.. takes a while to start but once it starts, goes fast.

Love this recipe. I substitute half the butter for olive oil and it is still very good.
